I have read a lot of people's ways and their problems. My approach with my new tank is as follows. I set up the display unit, sump and all the other "goodies" to achieve the best quality water my budget and space allows me to. If I have achieve what I had in mind and have spare critical equipment like heaters, pumps ect. in place, then start to introduce what I can for my setup. Say I can't have stable temperature, then get stuff that is hard and will survive that condition or should I start with the corals and fish and then build the rest around that. In other words what is first, the chicken or the egg?
